Kanye West: ‘Kim Kardashian More Influential Than Michelle Obama’

The Obamas vs The Wests

Music producer Kanye West claims his future wife, Kim Kardashian, is more “intriguing” and “influential” than first lady Michelle Obama.

West, 36, made the controversial statements in a new interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest, this week. West is still insulted that Vogue magazine cut Kim out of a photo featuring him at the MET Costume Gala earlier this year. He is also peeved that Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour passed Kim over for a coveted cover.

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue,” he whined. “She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday.”

“Collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing,” he boasted. “None is looking at what [President Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

Hey Kanye, you have to admit the Obamas are pretty darn fashionable! Like, if you wanted to pick a fight with Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits, we’d maybe understand.

Of course, this isn’t exactly the first time the Prez and ‘Ye have had beef; first, Barack called Kanye a “jackass” after he VMA-bombed Taylor Swift. Then in an interview with Amazon earlier this year, the President described a shift in culture and the changing vision of the American dream.

“Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success,” he explained. Source

    On a superficial, pop culture, reality tv, teeny bopper, instant gratification level I get what he is saying. Kim is infamous. The first lady is respected and well-liked by many. Even her detractors. Do some teenage girls want to dress like Kim K? :yes: Some might even want her life style right now. Money calls. But when they GROW UP and go to college who do they pattern themselves afer if they want to have lasting success: Michele Obama :tea: And by the way my First Lady is always fresh to death.. in her flats. I will have to say Kim wins on the shoe game :rofl:

    The reason people are comparing Kim to Michele is because this dumb hoe did. I mean Kim instagrammed a butt shot in a bikini. :thinking: Last time I checked that wasn’t something Michele needed to do :shrugs: And most importantly Kim does have a great body but let’s not act like Michelle is that fall off.

    In terms of influence…whatever FLOTUS wears, there’s a run on it at retailers…from J. Crew, to the Gap…anytime she wears a gown…that designer is put on the map…her shoe styling bought “kitten heels” back on the map (thank goodness)…her hair style has inspired weave/wig lines…Her causes have changed policies regarding school nutrition…Now Kim…she has her show, which is declining in ratings…she has a bunch of followers on various social media outlets…however, her clothing line isn’t successful…her make-up line isn’t successful…that credit card was a bust…the diet pills were a bust…her perfume hasn’t been successful (on that front, Paris Hilton tears her up!)…so…how is she influential? Kim is famous…that is WHOLLY different from influential

  69. 69
    Lala11_7 says:

    And speaking of “nobody checking for what POTUS Obama is wearing”…in Chicago, the suitery Hart, Schaffner & Marx was on the brink of shutting their doors…due to poor sales…until, then Senator Obama, let everybody know that’s where he gets his suits…the rest is history…True influence translate into making money…not just for yourself…but for others…

    Only in this day in age, a black man can come out his face and argue that Kim (a known porn star) is more influential than our First Lady (a well respected and educated lawyer first! mother, and wife!) Wtf? This what happens when we allow a whore like Kim to reach ridiculous levels of fame and notoriety for f*cking on a tape. Kanye trying real hard to keep his wh*re relevant with all the reckless mess he’s spilling on these interviews. It’s rather upsetting. Really? For the life of me, can someone please explain just what Kim Kardashian actually does for a living. I mean aside from the sex tape and jumping from man to man, why is she still a topic?
